OBJECTIVE Intracellular amyloid β-protein (Aβ) contributes to neurodegeneration in Alzheimer disease (AD). Apomorphine (APO) is a dopamine receptor agonist for Parkinson disease and also protects against oxidative stress. Efficacy of APO for an AD mouse model and effects of APO on cell cultures are studied. METHODS The triple transgenic AD mouse model(More)
Amyloid-β protein (Aβ) accumulates in the neurons of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients at an early stage of the disease. Recently, we found that Aβ with a toxic turn at positions 22 and 23 accumulates in neurons in AD brain. Here, we studied the accumulation of Aβ, toxic turn Aβ and high-molecular-weight Aβ oligomers in presenilin 1 (PS1) gene-transfected(More)
Alexia with agraphia is very rare symptom in multiple sclerosis. We present a patient of opticospinal multiple sclerosis with kanji-predominant alexia with agraphia. A 55-year-old, right-handed man was admitted to our hospital because of difficulty in reading and writing in August 2001. The patient had been diagnosed as having relapsing-remitting(More)
